Summer days – Visit to Cobh!
Posted: 10th August 2016
For our second trip with our Deaf adults group this summer we headed off to Cobh for the day.
We left Kerry by train on what can only be described as a typical Irish summer’s day – the rain was pouring down! Grey skies and chilly winds – not a great start. But that did not dampen our spirits. Luckily, as we crossed the county bounds the weather brightened. By the time we left the train, rain coats were taken off and sunshine warmed us on our walk to the restaurant for a very tasty lunch.
Refuelled, we headed to the Titanic exhibition. It really was so interesting! We had a guided tour, and a chance to experience some of the sights (and smells!) of what life was like on board for the passengers.
Cobh is a pretty seaside town, and after the exhibition we took a stroll around. We visited a park with a beautiful pavilion, which prompted some fantastic waltzing by us all!
Back on the train for the long journey home.
A time to chat and reflect on our lovely day.
